Zoolander Talks Presidential Politics On ‘SNL’ – WATCH VIDEO
Derek Zoolander appeared on “Saturday Night Live” to talk presidential politics with fellow model Hansel. Suffice to say, the two knew as much about the candidates that one would expect from them. Watch the video below of Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) talking about Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and more on “SNL.”
Zoolander and Hansel were introduced on “Weekend Update” as being commentators about the recent Men’s Fashion Week, but they said they were going to discuss what the audience “wants to hear male models talk about… politics.” And with that, Zoolander noted how there recently was the “Iowa Cous Cous,” but explained that he “skipped it because I don’t eat carbs.”
Hansel then pointed out that Clinton dressed from the ’90s, “which are hot now,” citing the revivals of “Full House” and “X Files.” He also mentioned that, like the ’90s, earlier this week “O.J .Simpson killed again.” Meanwhile, Zoolander compared her style to Kim Jong Un.
They both felt Sanders’ clothes were a “disaster” and reminded them of “Chernobyl.” And when a photo of Ted Cruz popped up, Zoolander thought Tom Cruise was running for president, but had let himself go. He said of Cruz that it’s a “mission impossible for his stylist,” while Hansel added that his fashion sense makes him “want to keep my eyes wide shut.” Zoolander then nonsensically strung together the names of a number of Tom Cruise’s other film, including Risky Business, Top Gun, Cocktail, and Jerry Maguire.
“Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost tried to correct Hansel and Zoolander that it was Ted Cruz, “with a Z,” but it didn’t seem to help. Jost then asked them about Trump. “We love him,” the two male models said. Zoolander pointed out that while he himself has his signature look, “Blue Steel,” Trump has “Orange Mocha Crapaccino.”
